Memories of Maddie
Rescueing her from a puppy mill. Seeing the changes from a frightened little girl to my best friend. Just hanging out together. Teaching her to roll over, sit up, shake hands, and dance. Never could get her to speak, no matter how hard I tried, even tempting her with her favorite goodies. Buying her outfits to wear and taking her picture. I am sure if she could have talked she would have told me what she thought about that. Being a hit with everyone she met. And best of all, giving me her unconditional love.


Well, my precious Maddie, it's been a week since you left me. How can I tell you how I feel. I miss you being here with me. From getting up in the morning to going to bed at night. No early morning or late night outside visits. Just talking to you for no reason at all. Loving you and you giving me butterfly kisses. You sending texts to Aunt Terri and Aunt Dani.
They enjoyed getting them, too. They love you very much, as I do. We have to go on, my love, but it is hard. I know you are now a healthy, happy little girl, playing with your new pals across the Rainbow Bridge. Just remember me, and look down and send me those butterfly kisses on the wind. Love, Mom


Well, my lovely Maddie, a second week has gone by without you. It is a sad time, but I try to focus on good memories of us together. Remembering the day I brought you home. Pam and I went to choose a chihuahua. We drove and drove and drove. Finally, found the place. The breeder had three dogs to offer, two males and one female. I couldn't resist you. At three and 1/2 pounds, such a small bundle, riding in Pam's lap, as I drove. I brought you to your new home. Such a scared little girl, afraid of big men and children. I suspect the breeder's boys chased you. But we got use to each other, and with the help of that mirror in the hallway, you settled right down. That's were your bed was at first. I have to thank Pam for bringing us together, and I am so glad I rescued you from that puppy mill. Pam rescued two dogs, as well. As Garth Brooks sings, "I wouldn't have missed the dance."
You were indeed The Wind Beneath My Wings, Little Maddie. I love and miss you. Love, Mom


Hey, pooch pooch, Happy Valentines Day. It won't be the same this year, because you are not here. But I guess you are here in spirit, the spirit of unconditional love. Enjoy your Valentine's Day with your new friends. Be happy. I love and miss you so much. Love Mom


Hey, little girl. Another week gone by without you. I miss you so much. Thought it would be getting easier, but it's not.
Guess I am not ready to move on. I know you are in a better place, no suffering, not being scared, meeting up with Blondie, Sissy 1, and Sissy 2, and making new friends. Ever;yone misses you here, you know. Remembering those butterfly kisses. I love and miss you, Maddie. Love, Mom.


Hey, Sweetpea. Am missing you more each day. Soon it will be a month without your precious face. Time is going by so slowly, since you have been gone. But I know you are a healthy, happy little girl now. Thanks for being my Guardian Angel, along with Florence. You two are a good team. I will celebrate your life on the 27th, my poohbear, for you had a good life with me. Take care my precious, and keep sending your love and those butterfly kisses, to me, on the wind.
Love, Mom


Maddie, love. It has been a month today, since you crossed the Rainbow Bridge, to your new home and life. So today, I celebrate your life.
Remembering a shy little girl who became a loving, loyal, friend. Remembering our almost walks together. Me carrying you up to the end of the block, putting you down, and you doing your dog thing all the way home. Bath day. I know you didn't like it, but you were patient, looking at me, saying with your eyes, hurry up Mom. Snuggling, and taking a nap together. You welcoming, with your bark, all our vistors, whether delivering the mail, delivering packages, or our friends, family coming to visit. You hated the doorbell, and when that rang you barked, barked, and barked. You were a good watchdog, my love. So you see, we had some good times together, six years worth. So, celebrate your new life, and remember me. Send your love, and those butterfly kisses to me on the wind. Miss you my baby.

Love Mom


Hey, little girl. How are you doing? Running and playing with your new friends, and feeling good. I have something to tell you sweetheart. I adopted another chichi, and her name is Sadie Rose. She is nine years old, and is black and white. Her mama went into assisted living, and none of the other relatives wanted her. She was in that shelter one month!! I could not leave her there.
I know you would have wanted me to adopt her, as no one else wanted to because of her age and baggage. You will always be in my heart and thoughts. You were one of a kind, mellow, loving, and took things as they came. She has her own personality, which I am still learning about. I was lonely, too baby, and I know you wouldn't want me to be lonely. I love you sweetheart. Watch over the both of us, and keep sending those butterfly kisses in the wind. Talk to you later.

Love Mom


Hey, poohbear. How I miss you. I miss your buttetfly kisses, your sweet face, your love, and your own unique personality. I will always miss you. Our trips to see Edith at Gilman's and Mountain View. She so enjoyed seeing you. Our times with Terri and Dani. They loved you, too. Our times with Pam, Cody, and Riley. The boys were so much bigger than you, and big barkers. That scared you, I know. My love, you are in a better place. You are happy and healthy, and I am sure missing me, as I miss you. But one day my love, Sadie Rose and I will met you across the Rainbow Bridge. Love always, Mom.


Dear Maddie,

Hi, my name is Sadie Rose. I am a chi chi like you and am nine years old. My first Mom had to go into an assisted living home, and was not able to take me with her. I ended up in a shelter. It was scary, with barking dogs, and strangers coming looking at me and taking care of me. But nobody wanted to adopt me and I was there for one whole month! Your mom found me and now I have a forever home. She loves you and is missing you so much. I hope you don't mind me being here with her. She has a big heart which has room for both of us. I promise to watch over her from this side of the Rainbow Bridge, just as you watch over her from that side of the bridge. You know, I think we would have been best friends, Maddie.

Love, your friend,
Sadie Rose


My sweet, sweet Maddie,

It's been about a month or so since I visited your rememberance. So much has kept me busy and away from you. But little one, I do not forget you. Sadie Rose reminds me every day about my little girl who crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Sadie and I are bonding. She is a little dickens. My Ms. Houdini, Bug Catcher, Walk Taker, squeaky girl, etc. She is a live wire, and keeps me on my toes.
I miss you my poochie pooh. You were my love bug, my best friend, and gave the best butterfly kisses. Take care my love. Keep being my guardian angel and sending me those butterfly kisses on the wind.

Love, Mom


Maddie Love,

I miss you my poochie pooh, every day. I hope you are having a great time with all your friends. Sadie Rose and I are doing ok, here. Please keep being my quardian angel and please keep sending those butterfly kisses on the wind.

Love you and miss you,


Dear Sweet Maddie,

My precious, thinking of you today and missing you something awful. It has only been four monthis, since you left me It seems like forever. Time can go so slow, and so fast. Sadie and I are bonding, and I am so glad she is here. You would have liked her, love. She keeps me grounded. You will have a place in my heart forever. Just like Sadie, will. You are two different dogs, with your own unique personalities. So don't be mad at me, because I gave Sadie a home. She needs me as much as I need her. I will miss you forever, my love. Keep those butterfly kisses, coming on the wind. I love you my little guardian angel.

Love and Miss you,



Dear Maddie,

My precious girl! I apologize for not visiting you. Things here have been crazy.
First, Sadie was ill, she's ok now. Then I finally had to have my gallbladder out. Recovering from that surgery. It's ok, sweet, I will be ok. Don't worry. Oh little girl, I miss you everyday. Sadie is such a comfort to me. She helps ease the pain of missing you. Things change so fast in our lives. It is hard to keep up sometimes. I miss you everyday. Thank you for being my guardian angel, and for all the wonderful memories I have of you. Tell Florence hello, and thank her too. I miss you both. You both were my best friends. One in animal form, the other in human form. I love you both. Love, keep sending those butterfly kisses on the wind.

Love always,



My sweet Maddie,

Time goes by so quickly. You have been gone 6+ months. Doesn't seem possible. You were here sitting beside me, just yesterday. I think of you all the time. About are outings to Cody and Riley's house, to see Edith, our walks, and our just hanging out. You were so at a disadvantage being raised by the breeder in Gaston. You had no social skills, didn't know how to play with your toys. You never did learn to play with your toys, but you did learn to sit, rollover, shake hands, sit up for goodies, and dance. How you could dance! I miss you my sweet. I know you are in a better place. I love you. Please keep being my guardian angel, and keep sending me those butterfly kisses on the wind.

Love always,



Maddie, love,

Sweet girl, it has been awhile since visiting you. Sadie Rose and I are doing ok. Just still recouping from my surgery.
On the go with appointments and stuff. Miss you everyday. Mike and Nancy are back, sweetie. They were both sad that you were gone. But Sadie Rose does her best to cheer them up and me too. It is fall here and the leaves are turning. So pretty. Hope you are having so much fun with your new friends. Welcome Gizmo across the Bridge, my pet. His family is sad that he is gone, too. You two can take walks together, and have a great old time. Thank you for being my companion and my best friend. Keep sending those butterfly kisses on the wind.

Love you, little one.



Merry Christmas, my precious.

The end of 2013, where did the time go. Miss you everyday. Sadie and I are doing ok. Another quiet holiday. You remember those, huh.
No snow for Christmas, but that's ok. You never liked snow. Your legs were so short, and you would get so cold. Had to fix a spot in the yard for you to go potty, or you wouldn't go. Going out for breakfast, this morning. Should be fun. My Christmas present to you, is my love always. Sadie eases the pain of your being gone. She is such a love. But remember me, love, and send those butterfly kisses on the wind.

Love always, Mom


Dear Maddie,

Merry Christmas.

Thank you for sharing your Mom. I have such a wonderful forever home, now. We have such fun with my squeakys and I have a lot of them. Not sure that is how you spell it. I love it here. Your Mom is such a good Mom. She misses you everyday. I try my best to help make her happy and watch out after her on this side, just as you love and watch out after her from your side. Have a nice Christmas with your new friends and Mom's friends and family, across the Rainbow Bridge.

Your friend, Sadie Rose

Take good care of them and yourself, baby girl.
Sadie Rose and I miss you, and those butterfly kisses in the wind. Keep watching over us.

Sadie will be 18 years old in March. I pray God will grant me a few more years.

My sweet girl, Maddie.
